What is the full depth of my inner soul?
How far does it fall short of infinity,
given the known limits of my being human?
Can all of the crevices, cracks, fissures,
scissures and abyss of the empty places
in my soul be filled when I desire Your Presence
to consume every void of my existence?
While complaining, gossiping, and rage
can grieve Your Holy Spirit, Iím only posing
these questionsÖ to expand my understanding.
Iím thankful that You will never run out
of forgiveness, patience, love and grace.
Walking blind in the carnality of the flesh
will keep me as a pathetic, miserable Christian.
As one of Your sons, Iíve embraced Your principles
while striving towards my spiritual maturity.
On many occasions, Iíve tasted small portions
of Your eternal Peace, Joy and Righteousness.
Continue to gently lead me by Your Holy Spirit,
so that the empty placesÖ have no sway over me.






Author Notes

Loosely based on:
Eph 3:16-19, 4:30-31; 1 Thes 5:19; John 14:23;
